Dpn't think so. The prongs are too big to fit between pavers and are 90 degrees to each other

Answer: 
It would be difficult to use this between pavers, unless there was a reasonable distance between them in order for the blades and base to easily enter the soil and connect with the weed.

Answer: 
If there is limited spacing it will not work, the teeth of the tool has to be able to open to capture the root and close to pull it out so that requires a decent amount of space, also it is better for the ground to be somewhat moist not hard/rocky.

Answer: 
That would depend on how close together the pavers are. If they are butted or only have a small distance than no. If they are 3 or more inches apart it will likely work. The claw starts in the open position and requires space then closes around the weed as it digs down into the ground

Answer: 
Based on my experience and use of the tool, I'd say it depends on the spacing of your pavers. I'd estimated that you'd need at least three inches of spacing in order for the jaws of the tool to be able to get a grip on the weed for removal. I recommend you watch the demonstration video that Home Depot has on the tool listing. It will give you a good feel for how the tool works. Then, you might want to Read More

Answer: 
No. The prongs are about the width of a large dandelion and you need to be able to grab the whole rosette. Normally pavers don't have that much space. I'd use a mixture of vinegar and Epsom salts to spray the weeds between the pavers and they'll be dead in about 12 hours or sooner, if it's hot and sunny.

Answer: 
It can, I have tried. However if your looking at those little pieces of grass growing and theres not much root, then it will just slip through. Anything with a nice root comes out very easy since that is was it is trying to hold on to. For the little pieces of grass and small little clumps, I just quickly pulled by hand.

Answer: 
This product works best on removing weeds with root-balls (e.g., dandelion, crabgrass). It has four spikes that get sunk into and around the root ball, then as you pull back, the four spikes clamp down together like four fingers coming together at one point, trapping the root ball and ripping it out completely from the ground. I'm not sure if this product will work as efficiently with typical turf Read More

Answer: 
If the soil is cultivated and very soft, it will be difficult to use the uprooter properly. It actually requires a firm spot to leverage the root out after clamping down around it. I think the lever would just sink into plowed soil. If you watch the video, you will see what I'm talking about. I think this tool is designed more for lawns rather than gardens or flower beds.

Answer: 
I'm thinking no. Unless the plant is very young and supple. If you apply too much pressure you could break the weed puller. Try spraying it directly with vinegar and Epsom salts. That way, you kill weeds and not the pollinators. That's how I eliminate all invasive weeds now that I can't uproot with my weed puller. I have used mine to pull up new sumac shoots -- just the shoots though.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Fiskars. The weeder works well in soft soil on weeds that do not have extensive root systems (for example: dandelions, crab grass, etc). How well the tool will perform depends on how established the weed is as well as the type of soil it is growing in.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 297 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE this weed stick! It needs a little getting used to and I wasn't sure if I liked it the first few times, but now I'm convinced. I like to go out when it rains and the ground is nice and soft, because the long tap roots pull up easily instead of breaking off. It's a little tricky to aim, you have to get it right in the middle of the weed or it just pulls the leaves off and the plant stays in the ground. You also get some of the grass each time, but I just think of it as an ongoing aeration project. :) This has definitely been a worthwhile purchase for me. It's so easy to go out each weekend and pull a few dandelions and other intruders out of the lawn to keep from being overrun, which I kind of was last year because I so hate getting down on my hands and knees to dig them out. So, yes. Highly recommended this weed stick. Just be sure you use it a few times and give it a chance before deciding whether you like it. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amazing product Amazing product! If your able to pull up weeds with this amout of root depth what else could you possibly ask for. Very easy to use and is for sure a back saver. April 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not Durable First, this tool does a good job of getting out medium to large weeds and the roots. However, parts of the tool needs to be made of more durable materials. The plastic has cracked after the first year of use, in a relatively small/medium sized yard. Now I do have clay soil below the surface of the ground, so that may help to put stress on the tool. But if the part that is plastic were a stronger material, I would be more satisfied and the tool more acceptable. I would not mind if the tool were priced slightly higher to be more durable. Not many people want to replace garden tools each year. The design is good otherwise, and highly effective while it lasts. April 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too much plastic This product would be outstanding if it weren't for all of the plastic. It needs a re-design to make it more durable. Not every job allows you to "go easy" with a weeder. It has to be durable in order to be useful. The plastic makes it super lightweight, which I suppose is great for those with back problems. Maybe that was the idea behind the product. However, the downside is that the product is best for occasional and light use, not more intensive jobs. I had an intensive job to do. After only one month of working with it, the plastic cracked and the four spikes would not clamp down together. See pics. August 27, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great until it breaks Nice design - too bad they made it out of plastic/composite. Its weak and un-able to do what its designed to do when broken. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fiskars uproot weed remover This tool is wonderful. I bragged on it so much that 2 of my friends have ordered one and love it. It has made weed removing easier and less of a back strain. I am recommending it to all I know. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fiskars Weed Removal tool Wow, this tool is terrific. I hated working on my hands and knees to remove those pesky weeds. And there have been a lot of them this season. I started on the dandelions first and I could remove them with ease and then eject them into my wagon. On some of the other weeds, I needed to sort of twist the tool so the claws could grab better to remove the crab grass. You need to pull back towards you to lift the weed out. I showed it to my neighbor and showed him how it works and he went immediately to Home Depot to order one. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome weed removal tool! I have read all the reviews on weed removal tools and this appeared to be the best rated. My front yard was a mess with weeds, mostly dandelions, since I did not have time to weed & feed earlier. The Fiskars weed tool is a lifesaver. Not only was it easy to use, but it also saved my back from pain by not having to bend down to pull out the weeds. You simply place the tool over the weed, step down on the base and pull down on the handle. There is no effort and even the biggest weeds with 6 inch roots came out easily. I pulled out about 60 weeds within 15 minutes. This is the best gardening tool ever. I highly recommend it, especially for weekend gardeners. May 13, 2014
